The staff on arrival were very friendly and helpful. Room was good size, clean and comfortable. We stayed for one night while travelling Route 66 in a two bed room with two small children, plenty of room for all of us. Breakfast included in the rate, basic food but filling and plenty of it. Great for the price we paid.... More

We took our 2 kids and stayed one night, the pool was very clean and well kept, they have a pavilion outside the pool with a big flat screen tv, the rooms are very nice, the staff was friendly and courteous, and Elvis stayed there in 1956!! How cool is that?!

The hotel is in reality a motel. My room had so much mildew that I had to move on the same day to another one. Fortunately the lady who cleaned helped in this matter. The second room was a bit better than the first. My room had no refrigerator like others had. Some of my friends complained of the room... More

We had stayed at this property four years ago, and decided to stay again while we were Springfield. The gentleman who checked us in was nice. Our room this time was damp and musty smelling. There was a dirty dehumidifier in the room. It wasn't running because the reservoir was full. I had to empty it twice. To make matters... More

We stayed here for one night on our Route 66 Honeymoon roadtrip. We really liked how comfortable, clean and convenient this motel was. We could park right at the door of our room and the bed was very comfortable. The air-con machine however was very loud (as it is in a lot of motels). The best part of this motel... More

Nicely decorated with photos, paintings and antiques from bygone era. Room was clean and updated with modern conveniences. Full continental breakfast with eggs, pastries and waffles was included. Location is within the city, off the main highways but easy to get to.

A really nice (good) Route 66 hotel. Clean and good sleeping Comfort. A nice-sized mini-fridge, microwave, and wardrobe. Good pool with a nice pavilion/shelter house. Really no need for additional comments. If you visit Springfield MO, you won't be dissapointed if you choose to stay here.

Having driven from Tucumcari's Route 66 gem The Blue Swallow earlier that morning, we were utterly delighted to pull into the Rail Haven's neon-bathed parking lot for the first time. Booked for one night on our way back to Chicago, we had stumbled into Springfield late on a Friday just as a big Route 66 festival and car show was... More

Stayed here two nights on a quick business trip in early August, never been to Springfield before. When I saw the very low night rate I was expecting the worst from the hotel but actually it was good, within limits. What I liked about it was very clean and tidy room, very comfortable bed and quiet. Also the breakfast was... More
